The University of Southern California (USC) was founded in 1880 and is the oldes private research center in the West. USC divides the campus into University Park which houses the College of Letters and Science and professional schools and The Health Science campus. The Health Science campus is North of the Los Angeles University Park campus and houses the Keck School of Medicine, School of Dentistry and three major-teaching hospitals. USC is known for its Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and Biokinseology and Physical Therapy and Biomedical Engineering research and Chemistry department.
How many researchers does it take to change a light bulb? And how many lives could they save by changing it?
Scientists have found a way to measure the unseen toll that environmental stress places on living creatures—showing that they can rev up their metabolism to work more than twice as hard as normal to cope with change.
Two USC researchers have proposed a link between string field theory and quantum mechanics that could open the door to using string field theory—or a broader version of it, called M-theory—as the basis of all physics.
USC researchers have discovered which stem cells are responsible for the growth of craniofacial bones in mice—a finding that could have a profound impact on the understanding and treatment of a birth defect that can lead ...
A superconductor that works at room temperature was long thought impossible, but scientists at USC may have discovered a family of materials that could make it reality.
Using a newly developed X-ray source, scientists have revealed how a new type of pain-relievers works - bonding to the same neuroreceptors that morphine does, but without the accompanying physical dependence.
A team of scientists has created a "conjugate" molecule—one stitched together from two separate molecules—that seeks out and blocks prostate cancer growth in lab animals.
Building on previous research that twisted light to send data at unheard-of speeds, scientists at USC have developed a similar technique with radiowaves, reaching high speeds without some of the hassles that can go with optical ...
Thanks to new LEGO-like components developed by researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, it is now possible to build a 3-D microfluidic system quickly and cheaply by simply snapping together small modules by ...
Remo Rohs is looking for some deep connections. He is integrating genomics and structural biology to uncover some significant insights into how proteins recognize DNA.
